Transfigurations
2019
Montreal

What does it mean to bring a new life into the world at a moment when humanity is about to reach a threshold of irreparable climate breakdown? I harness photography to explore relationships between a birthing human body and the fertile body of the earth tainted by environmental grief. I juxtapose diverse bodies in natural birth with caves and landscapes in order to raise questions of place of origin and body of origin. This project is a meditation on change and transformation, a negotiation between despair and hope which shapes a new generation’s visions of the future. I use photography as a strategy to investigate liminal spaces, transitions between worlds and thresholds of life.
